How to Detangle Hair

How to detangle hair? My hair doesn't tangle. Seriously.  It is not straight, or curly, just naturally wavy. It used to tangle really bad when I was a child, when I loved to wash it making a big mess all up my head, just like shown in shampoo advertisement:  lots of foam, all rubbed against the scalp, on top of my head. The final product was a child invariably crying, trying to detangle those long tresses with the help of loads of conditioner. Yes, my hair has always been long, much to my mother despair, as as a child I would never let anyone cut it anywhere near my shoulders.

I believe my hair doesn't tangle anymore due to a complete change in the way I wash it. It's not down to any product or tool, it is a shift in the mechanic act itself. All I do is to wash it without making a mess on top of my head. My hair always down, bellow my shoulders. First, I shampoo the scalp massaging it, then with my fingers I slightly pull the product down the length, finger combing it while I go, gently massaging the length of my hair. And I rinse it all off repeating the same movement. For the conditioner, all the same procedure, but starting midshaft as I don't want it anywhere near my scalp. Once finished finger combing product through hair, I make a tight bun on top of my head and finish whatever is left to do: shaving, scrubbing. This way the conditioner has time to penetrate, while keeping hair still, untangled. This is how it doesn't get fuzzy anymore. Then it is time to rinse it all off, while finger combing again. I remove all products entirely, never leave any residue whatsoever, and most importantly, rinse water should be as cold as possible. 


How To Detangle Hair


I don't even own a hair brush. For over 20 years I have been using a wide teeth wooden comb. Until  I moved into the desert, 5 years ago, I had stopped using conditioner all together. Now I use some because of the extreme dryness, but if you live in a humid area, and has an oily scalp, you can skip conditioner too and still have beautiful hair, with less hassle, less expenditure, and less time and effort while washing it.
